Shakespeare's bloodiest play! This Halloween season, murder, mayhem, and mutilation abound as Roman general Titus Andronicus returns victorious from 10 years of war with his archnemesis Tamora Queen of the Goths in tow and in chains. But when Rome’s rash and impetuous new Emperor decides not only to free her, but to marry her and make her his queen, she embarks upon a remorseless course of revenge. As she and Titus engage in an escalating cycle of violence and vengeance, the body count rises and Rome threatens to fall.

The secret marriage of a king's daughter sets off a chain reaction of slander, jealousy, and divine intervention in this quirky romance. With a cast that includes an evil stepmother, scheming suitor, and devoted lovers, the drama is heightened by duels, kidnappings, and disguised identities. “Cymbeline” offers captivating storytelling that is crowned by the beauty of its language. A moving story of loss and redemption, “Cymbeline” promises that a leap of faith can lead to miracles.

What do you get when you combine a shipwreck, a cross-dressed Lady, a lovelorn Lord, a fickle Countess, a drunken uncle, a flamboyant fop, an uptight servant, a mischievous clown, a protective pirate, and an identical twin? You get the kind of delightfully and deliciously twisted knot that only Shakespeare can untie in one of the Bard’s most lively, lovely, and lyrical comedies, “Twelfth Night.”
